: 16 December, 2009  (Application Story)
With the assistance of US Foreign Military Financing, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Ministry of Defence has taken delivery of an operations and command control system from HP Enterprise Services for the effective management of military resources in the country
HP Enterprise Services has completed the development and implementation of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Ministry of Defence’s (BiHMoD) operations and command system, known as BiHOCS, to support military organization and manage civil emergency response priorities.


The new system will enable the ministry to coordinate emergency and peace support operations by identifying, tracking and managing military resources.

The new Operations Centre for Command and Control was funded by the US State Department’s Foreign Military Financing account, which is intended to promote US national security. The account provides grants for the acquisition of US defence equipment, services as well as training to enable allies to improve their defence capabilities while fostering closer military relationships between the United States and recipient nations.

BiHOCS was part of a two-phase project under the US Defence Information Systems Agency contract vehicle, ENCORE. As part of the contract, HP was responsible for the design, preparation, deployment, implementation, integration and sustainment of the operation and command system. During the implementation stage of BiHOCS, HP worked to deliver the network, collaboration applications, supporting infrastructure, end-user equipment and administrator trainings needed to deploy a successful centre.

“The Operational Control System provides BiHMoD with the tools needed to effectively manage critical operations during emergency situations,” said Dennis Stolkey, senior vice president of US Public Sector for HP Enterprise Services. “HP is proud to work with the US government to provide Bosnia and Herzegovina with the resources to efficiently manage military functions while subsequently bringing the country closer to its goal of becoming a NATO member.”

The Operational Control System will provide the BiHMoD with a common operating strategy for increased collaboration to manage natural disasters by providing emergency services.

“The Operations Centre for Command and Control is the first of its kind in Bosnia and Herzegovina,” said Dr Selmo Cikotić, minister of defence of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Ministry of Defence.

The new centre provides command and control over units of the armed forces tasked with crisis management, operations management for peace support and monitoring regular daily operations as well as activities within the defence institutions of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

HP Enterprise Services is the recently announced brand name for Electronic Data Systems.
